With a opaque, bold honey color, it has a subtle lemon taste backed up with a nice, bready malt backbone. Because this lemon taste doesn’t have a rough bitter bite, it’s as though you are having a nice lemon cake! This is better than Honcho Hefewiezen from Mother Earth Brewing and the Hefewiezen from Santa Fe Brewing. After this beer, I highly recommend Karl Strauss’ Hefeweizen and La Cumbre’s A Slice of Hefen!

Looks like a good Hefe. Pale straw, but I expected a little more head. Retained a minimal head throughout. Very minimal lacing. A little cloudy.

I smelled florals in a big way. I'm surprised not many others have noted that.

Tasted floral, peppery, spicy, fruity. Fruits were citrusy, but also others.

Feels like a good Hefe. Dry feel is nice. Carbonated nicely.

I enjoyed this beer. For personal preference, however, it's a bit too floral for my loving.

Bottle poured into a Sudwerk Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours faintly hazy golden yellow with a frothy off white head that settles and laces lightly before disappearing.

S: Standard bready wheat and fruity yeast notes, floral, light citrus zest, and a little spice.

T: Grainy wheat, honey malt sweetness, fruity yeast notes, floral, hints of citrus, and a little clove spice.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: The smell and taste are fine, but I wish it was a little lighter in body and looked a bit prettier in my glass.
